Single URL sites are redirecting to Google Search
I use Firefox for my office, and there are several URLs internal to my company that work with a single word.
For example: "xyz/12345" is the same as "http://xyz.company.com/12345" which opens the resource 12345.
This used to work absolutely fine until the latest update.
Current: 78.0.1 (64-bit) on MAC OS 10.15.5
Now, xyz/12345 searches google instead of navigating to the website. I do still need google search on the browser bar, as I use it frequently as well.
Having to type out http://xyz/12345 is an overhead that I would like to avoid.
Please suggest if there are any workarounds that could be used to get this working again.

Posted the same query to reddit.com/r/firefox and got the answer.
Go to about:config and change the value of browser.fixup.dns_first_for_single_words to True.
This fixed the problem.
